Who we are…

The Role of Swarna Hansa Foundation
Swarna Hansa Foundation is a Social Development, Non-governmental Organisation established in 1979 to help people in Sri Lanka to engage themselves in a discerned development process.
Swarna Hansa's initiatives majorly focuses on two socioeconomic processes; development and undevelopment.

Tobacco - Undevelopment

Tobacco is an example of the undevelopment process. Prevalence of tobacco is an obstacle for development. Rejecting tobacco saves money and capital, labour and land, health and environment.
Rejecting tobacco is therefore a prerequisite for development.

Water First - Development
Swarna Hansa's major activity in the field of development is redevelopment of water resources in Sri Lanka.
The latest initiative of Swarna Hansa in this field is Dahasak Wew - 1000 reservoirs.

Once Sri Lanka had more than 100,000 village reservoirs scattered all over the country. At that time the country was self sufficient in food, industries and had an exemplary development process. Therefore any sustainable development process in Sri Lanka should again start from rehabilitating the reservoir culture. Because it is indigenous. And will take roots in the land. The objective of the programme Dahasak Wew is to reconstruct 1000 village reservoirs particularly in drought stricken areas of the country.
